I am a college student with no credit history. I was hoping to get a credit card that would help me to build some good credit. I was hoping to find a card with little to no yearly fees. My main purpose is not to get reward points or cash back, I just want to build credit. Any advice on what card could help me would be great.

The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.

You can consider applying for the Discover it® Student Cash Back credit card. There is no annual fee or activation fee. The issuer will report your credit activity to the major credit bureaus every month. You will be able to monitor your credit progress because your FICO credit score will be included on every statement.

The Discover it® Student Cash Back card also has a rewards program. You will get 5% cash back at different places each quarter like gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, Amazon.com and more up to the quarterly maximum, each time you activate. Plus, earn unlimited 1% cash back on all other purchases – automatically.
